Talking 4h project help! Things horses can/not eat.

My friend and I are doing a 4h project on things horses can and cannot eat, like common things that most people wouldn't know that would be bad for a horse to consume and things that would be very good for a horse to eat. I want to impress some of the snooty people in my group (; so help would be great right now! Thanks! :B

Potato peelings can be poisonous. I heard coliflower and broccoli are a bad choice. Funny thing tho. If you google it you get all sorts of yes you can no you can't stuff. So, I guess we will all learn from this thread.

I would say no sugars, like peppermints, chocolate etc. I've also heard that chocolate can give them a positive drug test? But sugars could cause cavities since horses have no way of "cleaning" their teeth like we do.

Onions are toxic to horses. Red maple leaves and yew bushes are poisonous also.
